Back from Montreal

Back from Montreal

Back from Montreal. It’s been kind of a nutty travel day with swirling snow in the morning and lovely 55 degree weather back in Brooklyn this afternoon.

The trip was not exactly what I’d wanted — I guess traveling to a city in cold weather with an 11-year-old in tow means finding compromises on both sides.  For my part, I never did make it to the Montreal’s Underdog Boxing Gym or to the Beaux Arts Museum to see the Chinese Warriors.  On the other hand I did walk 1/2 the city (cold weather or not we were going!) found a terrific vegetarian restaurant on Rue Saint-Denis, got to impress my daughter with my remembered college French, convinced the young one to have a spa afternoon complete with massages and facials,  and saw a terrific dance performance entitled “Audible” by a group called the 605 Collective mixing elements of hip-hop, parkour, capoeira and classical dance.

Luckily, I’ve still got until Monday before I have to go back to work so it’ll be three lovely days of gym time starting tomorrow morning.  I really can’t wait.

    Welcome home. Have a great weekend and some good workouts. Did your daughter enjoy the dance performance? I had never heard of parkour before and just saw a special on it within the last year.
